The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama, on Wednesday resumed work after testing negative for coronavirus.

He had tweeted, “Did my fourth Covid-19 test yesterday at the first sign of a throat irritation and unfortunately this time it came back positive. That is life! Win some lose some. Heading for isolation in a health facility and praying for the best.”

The minister announced the latest Covid-19 result when he tweeted from his verified Twitter handle on Wednesday.

Onyeama tweeted: “By the very special grace of God my latest #COVID19 test result came back NEGATIVE after three weeks isolation.

I am eternally grateful to my family, the Commander in Chief, President Muhammadu Buhari, and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, the medical team, relations, friends, colleagues, religious leaders and..

“Numerous well-wishers, who through their care, prayers, fasting, messages of support and encouragement never let me walk alone.”
